National Geographic helps you take charge of health care guided by a physician expert in natural healing, herbal medicine, and home remedies. Never have we needed this advice more than now, as worries about hospital-borne infections, antibiotic resistance, and pandemic threats make us yearn for the days of doctor home visits and mother's chicken soup. We need to rediscover the special care and comfort that comes from caring for health at home, says Dr. Low Dog. In this book she guides us in identifying, responding to, and caring for all the most common ailments, so that when it's time to take care at home, you have a doctor's advice on how. Learn how to make herbal remedies and why you and your family will be healthier for doing so--and get advice on when it's best to consult a health care professional instead.
With the wisdom of a modern medicine woman and the authority of an internationally respected doctor who is an expert in herbal medicine and dietary supplements, Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., represents a 21st-century wise woman actively building a platform in the new landscape of self-help healthcare. A renowned speaker and regular columnist for Prevention magazine, she is a leader in national health policy and regulatory issues.
"Low Dog does a great job of balancing the appropriate times to take herbal remedies and provides clear instructions on using herbs and making teas, salves, and tinctures. Accessible and reliable." -Library Journal
